What is a Learning Pod?

Micro-schools pods, pandemic pods, and learning pods all refer to the same concept, one that is pretty easy to understand: students gathering together in a small group – with adult supervision – to learn, explore, and socialize.

Why pods? Interest in pods has spiked due to the COVID 19 pandemic. In pods, many families see an educational environment where their children can learn and socialize with fewer health and safety concerns. In a recent poll of families nationwide, just 1/3 of parents said they were comfortable sending their child back to school under the present circumstances.  For many, pods seem like a way to both prioritize safety and engage in much-needed in-person learning and community—for parents looking for alternative learning environments. 


Each week will be tailored to each pod.
Week one will be ice breakers, team building,  Intro to the end of a summer passion project. Intro to program, 


Planned Activities (depending on pod goals)
Weekly trips - Planned trips include Rock Climbing, Ninja Course. Dorney Park, Six Flags, Pool, Beach, etc.

We pride ourselves on providing unique day trips and special overnights for campers going into the 7th, 8th and 9th grades!
